Aerospace Composites, which also has plants in Texas and Michigan, builds tooling for composites work. Although Hampson would not directly confirm the contract is with Boeing, a spokesperson acknowledged that several aerospace analyst reports that it is are not wrong.
The contract is believed likely connected with Boeing’s plan to expand its US-based production on the 787-9 and future airplane programs.
